I've always wanted a 3.5" model 27, but they have gotten so dad gummed expensive, I glommed this 4" model 28 instead.

Because of California's crazy handgun laws, pre-lock revolvers must be C&R or an in-state private party purchase to be available in Cali. This one is a C&R.

The finish looks decent, grips seem solid and it should be a good shooter.

Love the iconic Smith and Weapons. Model 27-28 are some of my favorites. You are right about the 27s rising in price. I think some people are turning to these as the Pythons have become stupid ridiculous $$.

That's some great looking revolver. :thumb: Can't go wrong with one of these nice older S+Ws.

Think you are right about the Python. To me, the 3.5" Model 27 epitomizes the .357 Magnum revolver, perhaps even more than the Python.

Thanks. I doubt I'll notice much difference from the 3.5" M27, when I shoot this one...;)

Interesting the M27/M28's have gotten so expensive. I'll have to tell my Dad his 3.5" M27 is "collectible" now. He bought it in '65 for Viet Nam, then decided it was too pretty to take with him. I took up handloading in the '80's in part so I could afford to feed that pistol.

Looks like a LOT of fun! Missed out on a consignment M28 about 6 mos ago, a fellow that buys even more guns than I do got the call first from my favorite arms dealer. Have a 9mm stainless Witness waiting on 30 days right now, no hard feelings.
